It wont work on Laptops, even worse. It will work with Tablets but it wont be able to compete iPad especially because ARM version wont come with remote management features.
As I said this will be Epic failure. Luckily there is nothing that Windows 8 offers so people have to upgrade from Windows 7 therefore Windows 7 will stay around for a long time.
The problem is that PC does not need Metro in order to communicate with end user. We already have desktop itself which works great. Phone and Tablets need Metro because that is and should be only way to communicate with End User. And for same reason bringing Desktop there is stupid. Windows 8 will never be accepted and will never work for Corporate World. Professional people wont use it cause of Metro being very intrusive and stupid and average Joe wont find it easy to work with. New UI is so ridicilous that people end up putting shortcut for shutdown script on their desktops. Microsoft went against all UI principles with this one and they are going to pay big ass price for it. I can't help but to laugh at this point.
